...the tin-ternet

It used to be that kids would play with old tin cans and bits of string as toys. Tin can telecommunications.
They all have mobile phones now.
A couple of tin cans and some string made a good pair of stilts.
Well how can that compete with the latest mountain bike as transport?
Most of the group games I had as a kid involved a can that needed to be kicked or knocked.
Oh ....and what endless hours of fun I had with string.

Any way its my theory that such things have passed from childish games & is why we have such an excess landfill problem.
Blame progress I say ! ......

Aw, no. All the cans we collected for "Kick the Can" have well-rotted and are giving us recycle points by now.
